is that? tom foreman is in washington to speculate. good morning. >> reporter: hi, carroll. we don't know what that means. there's been speculation it will have something to do with mental health issues because certainly at a lot of local levels people talked about that on the republican side. people on the conservative side saying that has to be addressed as much, perhaps more than the gun issue itself. so we're expecting that may be the direction to go but the truth is we don't really know. what we do know is that the nra was quiet immediately after this. they often are after such incidents and they usually say as they did this time out of respect for the community and the family involved but now that a little bit of time has passed what we would certainly expect here is that there would be a clear message to the white house and to others which is be careful about overreacting at this point because the nra will push back and certainly they have proven that politically they have the power to do it not only nationally but certainly at the state level. carol? >> tom foreman reporting live

and in washington about what the intentions of the assad regime is with the sarin gas, these chemical weapons that can be so deadly. >> greta: jennifer, what makes this so vastly different than anything else is you've got this 60-day window. it's not like nuclear weapons where some country has that sort of discussion with us that endures for years, and they sort of plod along. this is a 60-day window, and in the event that he doesn't get asylum or in the event he gets asylum but as he leaves, he does something rather dirty or leaves insecure, one minute in a discharge of this sarin gas, and it's deadly to so many people. this is different. would you not agree? >> reporter: it's so much more deadly than cyanide, for instance. this nerve gas, it kills instantly, as you said. i think the real question we have to ask ourselves is why would the assad regime use chemical weapons on their own people, and that is really a question that only assad himself can answer. it is very clear that his regime is teetering. it's a desperate measure, if anything, and it's very interesting to me that several middl
: you are looking live at washington d.c. in the capitol, believe it or not law makers hoping to avoid the fiscal cliff are making progress. aides said they were closer to cutting a deal. but one thing that will not click is tax hikes. how much would they be and who will would have to pay them when it come to revenue. joining us is saradoga springs, utah mayor mya love. he wanted tax increases and would now settle for 1.2 trillion and impact $400,000 or more. and sounds like he squished a bit on it and what do you think about the supposed deal? >> it is not much movement from the president's side. in if you are going for $250,000 to $400,000 that is not much. young came out with a report saying if you tax the top two brackets that will cost you 700,000 jobs. these are janitors going in and having their manager say i am sorry wecan't afford you any longer and these people are working pay check to pay check. they need mon tow feed their family. >> gretchen: - >> steve: the president wanted a two year debt limit. and that was the republicans leverage. it seems like the republicans are get
matthews in washington. let me start with this. it's five days until christmas, 12 till new years and the battle lines are drawn. the trenches have been dug. the president has made his promise and intends to keep it. that promise is fairness. he cannot go along with any republican deal that protects the wealthy. he will risk the cliff to keep his promise. if it comes to it, he'll leap right off of it. to do less would be a sign to his enemies a sign that they can beat him. well u they simply tried. the words out he wants former u.s. senator chuck hagel in nebraska for secretary of defense. he's a republly can and a combat veteran of vietnam. the neocons are out to stop him for what he is and what they aren't. he served in war right up front. he opposed unness wars like the ones we've been fighting. fighting and getting ourselves into all of these years. in other words, they opposed the secretary of defense who thinks the man is the commander in chief. there's not an obama vote among them, by the way. u.s. congressman and democrat from virginia. gentlemen, let's talk about the firs
. maybe sequestration is going to happen so for that let's go to washington. >> juliet: all right. tick-tock, tick-tock, time is almost up for lawmakers as we say to avert the fiscal cliff. they worked throughout the weekend in hopes of hammering out some sort of deal. >> dave: peter doocy is live in washington and we hustle you over to the capitol. and what is the latest, do you think we'll get something done? >> reporter: dave, we were told late in the evening that legislative staff was going to work through the night, but the only principal we heard from was mitch mcconnell who said he and his democratic counterparts have been trading paper all day saturday, but the only big news, mcconnell cared to share with us, in the state he represents, kentucky, louisville beat the university of kentucky by three and meanwhile, the officially republican weekly address features another republican senator explaining once again why a deal before monday night's deadline is so important. >> at a time when our federal debt's topped 16 trillion dollars, it's been more than three years since the senate
's an example of how just murky the divisions are in syria, later today washington will declare one of the group of rebels a foreign terrorist organization. according to federal documents the group is merely another alias or al qaeda in iraq. >>> this morning we know the name of the navy s.e.a.l. killed during a raid to rescue a kidnapped american doctor in afghanistan. the s.e.a.l. is identified as petty officer first class nicolas checque. barbara starr joins us from the pentagon with more on petty officer checque, a member of s.e.a.l. team six, the same elite unit that of course took out osama bin laden. barbara? >> good morning, ted. the military is confirming now that the body of 28-year-old nicolas checque has been returned to the united states, back to his family. no announcement about burial services for this young man, a native of pennsylvania, navy s.e.a.l. who is remembered by those who knew him at his high school, his principal, his wrestling coach, talking about the young man they knew when he was a boy back in school. >> worked hard every day, never complained. those are the things
? >> parents with patience. our bill weir one of them. lisa stark in washington tonight. lisa, thank you. >>> and the weather causing fear to the south, as well end tonight. we told you about the twisters, this evening, just as so many families try to clean up, we got reports of a tornado touching down near the outer banks. they're bracing for more across the region now, and abc's matt gutman is in alabama tonight. >> reporter: the giant tornado carving destruction into the heart of this city. >> christmas day tornado, going through mobile. look at them. that's like two tornadoes. >> reporter: this ef-1 twister, with winds up to 110 miles per hour, exploding into this church, snapping trees and mangling mansions. over 150,000 homes still without power. neighbors joining work crews, offering a shoulder and a hand. tessie and russell johnson held on tight to each other as the twister roared through. and you said it lasted for just a short time? >> yeah, about 30 seconds. that's all it took. >> we were saying i love you a lot. >> yeah. >> reporter: this family also lucky to be alive. ashley
. >> peter doocy joins us live from washington with the very latest as we see video of the president hopping on board air force one, right? >> that's right, clayton. president obama popped in to the james brady briefing room at the white house yesterday at about 5:30 and basically said that since the american people in november voted for democratic control of the white house and the senate and republican control of the house. lawmakers need to compromise but he also made clear as of right now when it comes to the fiscal cliff and avoiding it, there is no deal. >> so as we leave town for a few days to be with our families for the holidays, i hope it gives everybody some perspective. everybody can cool off. everybody can drink some eggnog, have some christmas cookies, sing some christmas carols. enjoy company of loved ones. and then i would ask every member of congress while they're back home to think about that. think about the obligations we have to the people who sent us here. think about the hardship that some americans will endure if congress does nothing at all. >> it was just a few minu
that tape was leaked to the "washington post," if it doesn't come from the reporter, does that mean it came from general petraeus? if so, why was he taping his conversations with reporters without them knowing it, and who leaked it and why? so that's still unresolved. and general petraeus, of course, was the commander before general allen. and of course the commander before general petraeus, who had to resign in his own political scandal, he is now poised to release a new tell-all blockbuster book who will open that whole scandal up again. those are the last three top guys. in terms of the top level leadership in the war in afghanistan, it's kind of a freaking mess, right? and it has been a mess for a long time. the pentagon just released its report that shows the results of president obama's big surge of troops into afghanistan after he took office. the report found that violence in afghanistan after the surge is higher than it was before the surge. enemy-initiated attacks are higher now than they were before the surge started, the surge that was supposed to decimate the enemy. one of the

to resist even reasonable limitations. there's a close political parallel between the gridlock in washington on dealing with our economy and national debt and the eerie silence in congress as the list of horrific gun crimes grows by the day. senator durbin, thank you. i know you have got a good heart on this as well as a good head about fiscal matters. what's wrong with the congress when it comes to protecting, ensuring the domestic tranquility? >> well, there's a legitimate concern about our second amendment, chris. you understand that part. but there's also a very strong political force that is trying to push forward, primarily for the dealers and manufacturers, an agenda that will sell more firearms and more sophisticated firearms, more expensive firearms, and that has really dominated the scene. if you asked who is the head of the alcohol, tobacco, and firearms division of the department of defense, you would have to learn, unfortunately, that for literally years there's not been a head. the nra and gun lobbyists successfully even stopped the basic organization in charge of enforcement o
